    I love recovering faster now too! It is a nice reminder of how far we’ve come. And a great motivator to keep going!

    Great blog!
    My recommendation is to definitely drink a few liters of water before even leaving, have water with you during, and drink another liter within the half hour after getting home. I know- that’s a lot of water but water is so necessary!
    Food wise- it really depends on your body. I have an incredibly sensitive stomach so I have to be careful. I like the idea of sports beans and the Gu kind of stuff. Energy bars like Cliffs bars are good too.

    That’s awesome you have a great recovery time! Awesome!
